Bush’s Midnight Regulations
Policies he’s attempting to pass in the darkness of night before leaving office

Bush and Company have spent the past eight years working to change laws and policies that affect their cronies, especially those in the petroleum, energy, pharmaceutical and military industries. Now they are making a last-minute effort to ram through some changes they haven’t succeeded in passing, with the help of a complicit Congress and a hope that the nation doesn’t notice.

The new rules would be among the most controversial deregulatory steps of the Bush era and could be difficult for his successor to undo. Some would ease constraints on private industry, including power plants, mines and farms.

Other regulations would lift controls on emissions of pollutants that contribute to global warming, drinking-water standards, coal mining and eliminate obstacles to commercial ocean-fishing. There are over 90 new regulations in the plan; at least nine of them concern reducing benefits for the people. Most of these actions favor lobbyists who fear new regulations and policies from the Obama administration.

The Bushies have been rewriting regulations that displease their cronies since the afternoon of Bush’s inauguration. On that very day they blocked the completion or implementation of regulations passed by the Clinton administration. These included 254 regulations covering drug and airline safety, immigration and pollution.

Bush is also appointing several of his cronies to civil service positions. This will provide them with employment security and prevent the Obama administration from appointing more qualified people in key jobs.

Bush also intends to pardon himself and all of the criminals in his administration from prosecution for their illegal activities while in power.
